The TaylorMade M6 driver is the next generation of the previously-released TaylorMade M4, which was part of the family of drivers that introduced the company’s Twist Face technology. Twist Face is basically an asymmetrical face that creates different bulge and roll characteristics that cause off-center hits to correct more to the centerline.
The M6 clubface technology has added the juiced-up speed-injected Twist Face so that every head is calibrated to the maximum legal limit of ball speed. Additionally, TaylorMade has reengineered a more flexible Hammerhead 2.0 slot and aerodynamic carbon sole design with what they claim is an inertia generator.
TaylorMade states that every clubhead is inspected, measured and tuned by a proprietary algorithm to ensure conformity. Whereas other manufacturers have a level of variance from one clubhead to the next, TaylorMade’s testing ensures that every golfer gets a hot and fast driver.
Getting a complete overall performance picture of the club by using a nine-point contact regiment, the M6 had a noticeable improvement over the M4 in two categories: launch angle and backspin. The M6 launched about 0.5° higher with about 500 RPM less backspin, which created a noticeably longer shot.
Due to its decrease in spin and despite the increased launch angle, the M6 actually had a lower ball flight than the M4. The M6 created a more penetrating ball flight, which resulted in longer carry and more roll out.
The shot dispersions of the M4 and M6 were similar with toe hits staying about nine yards right of center and heel hits hanging 10 yards left of center.
Overall, the M6 has improved upon the M4 with its higher launch and lower spin, which results in more total distance. The M6 is perfect for players who are looking to increase their overall driving distance.
